About The Author

Thomas K. McKnight grew up in Cincinnati and still roots for the Reds, the Redhawks (B.S. in Business from Miami University), and the Buckeyes (J.D., The Ohio State University). In the Marines, he was a bench technician whose job it was to breathe life back into radar equipment that had been abused, blown up, or dropped from aircraft. He was a lawyer at the FCC in a bureau that attempted to strangle a new industry (cable) to protect an old one (television broadcast). At the White House, he helped provide legal cover for a group of senior military officers who were nervous about national security and electronic communications. He became a broadcast attorney for an awe-inspiring team of entrepreneurs at Combined Communications Corporation (Karl Eller, Larry Wilson, Al Flanagan, and Jeff Davidson). Gannett acquired Combined and McKnight helped USA Today as it was launched by the indomitable Al Neuharth. McKnight launched his own entrepreneurial career with Orion Satellite Corporation. Other highlights include PTAT and Smith Barney (he’s still a licensed stock broker). Since 1996, he has been teaching entrepreneurship courses at Columbia University, Georgetown, Maryland, George Washington, American, Denver, and the University of North Dakota. In 1997, he was Entrepreneur in Residence, The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania. He has worked or done business in 23 countries. He is currently involved in the growth and development of a new mortgage-lending institution and the dramatic expansion of a buy-renovate-rent residential real property enterprise in the Washington, D.C. metro area.
